    A BMW mechanic recently told me about this stuff. I purchased a bottle and over a week or so, applied it to the gasket at the top of the windscreen that was dried out and hard.
    This product softened the gasket and now it is pliable and restored.

    Clean the gasket first then apply liberally, letting the liquid sink in overnight. Apply numerous times until the gasket has been restored. I ended up applying this to the other gaskets on my car as well.

    Might event help to keep those pesky B-Pillars soft as well. ;)

    Be well.

    I did that a year or so ago. Turned my whitish windshield seal a cracked grayish to a soft black again. It’s a great product and works well on outer rubber exposed to the elements. I have been using it for a few years on my cars.....BUT!!! I used it on my Cayenne door seals and within a week or so I kept hearing this loud squeaking/popping as the car went over bumps. Took me awhile to realize the door seals were sticking together because of this stuff and no longer sliding on each other. Just FYI.

    You guys may want to also consider this from Honda. Have been using it for 16 years on my S2000 without the sticking and whitening complaints Jerry has. It's a bit more expensive than Ron's recommendation, but IMHO does do a good job of rejuvenating rubber long term.

    Would be interesting to learn about other alternatives available. My next project is saving the rubber on a 36-year old car.

    Just to clarify energy it didn’t make any of my seals white. They were a whitish/gray and it corrected that.

    Absolutely. Been using this for years after the folks over at the Porsche forums turned me onto it. Great product and a great applicator bottle.

    Sounds like cool stuff! Does it make the rubber sort of swell and can it close up the very small micro cracks in aging rubber often seen around an old windscreen?

    I've used both gummi pflege and Shin-Etsu for years on various cars. Great stuff.

    Yes, it seemed to fix most of that on my windshield seal.

    I have found it to be terrific for sponge rubber like the header seal and door seals.
